To Shave Or Not To Shave [POLL]

John Dimaio, Greater Atlantic City PR Council

OK, so I grew a beard. I answered the challenge of a co-worker to take part in “No-Shave November” for charity.

Now that the calendar has turned from November to December, I am torn about what to do next. I’ve never had a beard before, and I was literally counting the days until I could again use my razor. However, now I’m not sure I want to.

The chief reason to shave it off: It itches. A LOT. The main reason to keep it: I like getting up and not having to shave. When you get up at 2:30 AM, every minute saved, is an extra minute wrestling with the snooze alarm.

Public reaction has been mixed. It’s about 50-50 with people saying to keep it or shave it. Some carry more weight than others, and I think some are just being kind.

It is the the Christmas season, and if you remember the old TV classic “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” there are some who think the red beard resembles the young Chris Kringle.

What do you think?  Take my poll, and maybe I’ll take your advice.
